Rebar is thrilled to announce Adaptive Metropolis: User-Generated Urbanism. This three-day symposium will take place September 27-29 at UC Berkeley in celebration of the Centennial of the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning (see how else the LAEP is ringing in their 100th birthday). We’re inviting participants from around the globe – citizens, artists, activists, academics, designers – to discuss the power of emergent collaborative networks in shaping the urban realm.

Our exciting lineup of speakers starts with folks like Steven Johnson, Alfredo Brillembourg, Gil Penalosa and Lisa Gansky. In addition to their keynote addresses, there will be structured debates, plenary panels and small breakout sessions on topics like: the new tools for city-making that are enabled by emergent collaborative networks; and whether these tools able to make our cities more resilient, livable, and just.

It is our hope that participants will come away with a few critical tools for analyzing projects in the broader context of city-making, and the conference provides the opportunity to get started right here in San Francisco. The symposium concludes on Sunday when Rebar group will lead participants on an urban exploration of The City.

There will be engaging content, provocative discussion and plenty of time for informal conversation with like-minded peers. For more information – including a full list of speakers, a detailed schedule, and how to register – visit the Adaptive Metropolis website.
